    Ya, he is another consideration. There are some unknowns
    That is my list like two years ago man. My new list is above and much shorter.

    I think Dame and CJ have zero accountability, and that's not a good thing. They have the greenest of green lights. That's on Stotts. They're not the kind of guys that would defy their coach, so to me it's about Stotts being a big pushover. He needs to reign those two guys in, and I don't think he has it in him.

    If I woke up to the news that Dame has been traded for Westbrick I would be devastated

    Well you would have had to wake up to it 2 years ago. He was not on my list of who I would trade for after that.

    Does that mean we have to await your word before any trades can happen? My God, it's like I have a twin.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I wouldn't either, now. That was four years ago...Lillard has improved quite a lot since then, and Porzingas looked like a much more impactful prospect then.

    Blazers have had some popular players over the years. How many retired as Blazers?

    NO player is untradeable!

    yeah but Steve Blake came back 3 times at least...Dame is the future, not the past. He'll own the team before he's traded...he's the franchise right now and he's attracting talent in a way no other Blazer has really ...I'm sold on his loyalty...we got a David Stockton who will retire a franchise legend

    sure they are. The only way franchise guys like dame, harden, LeBron, Giannis, etc get traded is if they demand it. No one is trading any of them for basketball reasons.
